A Reply to Oppy on Ambiguity and Christ-Shaped Philosophy

by Paul K. Moser

In this paper, Paul Moser replies to specific claims about ambiguity raised by Graham Oppy.

He also suggests that Christ-Shaped Philosophy does not settle for broad goals that are identical with the goals of the natural sciences, even if it is broadly continuous with reliable science. If it did settle thus, it would offer nothing distinctive. Instead, it offers a philosophical approach that goes beyond mere truth-seeking and understanding to redemption by God in Christ. Anything short of this will fail to be Christ-Shaped Philosophy. It thereby will fail to incorporate the distinctive kind of wisdom or philosophy recommended by the apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 2:6-7. “Christ-Shaped Philosophy” aims precisely to restore attention to that kind of philosophy.
